Daylight savings time... it's not just for smoke alarm batteries anymore!Clock

MotorsportReg.com captures a lot of information when you register for an event. For attendees, it allows you to only have to enter that information once and then register for as many events as you like. For organizers, it helps you run a smooth event with all of your attendee data stored in one place.

As you set your clocks back and check those smoke alarm batteries, take a minute to review and update your MotorsportReg information.

Goodbye American Le Mans Series... Been Nice Knowin' Ya!

Date

End of an era

alms2013025As most of you probably know, this weekend's Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta marks the final race of the American Le Mans Series. Merging with Grand-Am for next year, the combined series will be known as United SportsCar. It will be interesting to see how well the two series play together. 

I attended the Oak Tree Grand Prix on October 5th and I'm glad I did. Our friends at Virginia International Raceway put on a GREAT show!  Thankfully the new series will be back next year (maybe it will be cooler in August?).

Last week we read an interesting article from the Associated Press that suggests that according to the latest stats from the Federal Highway Administration, American's love affair with cars is over.

Can this really be true?  Here are the stats:

  • After rising for decades, the collective miles people drive peaked in August 2007
  • During the "Great Recession" the collective miles driven dropped sharply and has plateaued ever since
  • Vehicle miles traveled during the first half of 2013 were down slightly, continuing the trend
  • Average miles per individual peaked in July 2004 at just over 900 miles per month
  • By July 2012, the average miles per individual declined 9% to 820 miles per month
  • Percentage of people in their teens, 20s and 30s with driver's licenses has been dropping significantly

So what exactly is going on here? Here's what the researchers say.
